Fen cops have praised members of the public after acting on intelligence about drug dealing in Wisbech.
Officers arrested a 16-year-old male for possession with intent to supply drugs, before seizing a quantity of drugs and two BB guns on West Street yesterday (January 30).
The male was interviewed and has been released under investigation.
Police were alerted by the neighbourhood team after they investigated the area based on reports they received from Fenland residents.
Writing on their Facebook page, Policing Fenland said: "Some great work by the neighbourhood team yesterday when they went out hunting based on intelligence they have been receiving about drug dealing in the Wisbech area.

One resident said "Well done to all who helped", while another added: "Good work chaps".
